Panthers trade for Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault

·1 min read

Despite a relatively stuffy wideout room, the Carolina Panthers were still on the lookout for some reinforcements. Well, they got themselves a pretty surprising one on Monday evening.

As first reported by NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Panthers have traded for Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Laviska Shenault. What is headed back to Duval, however, has not yet been made clear.

Shenault was a second-round pick of the Jaguars back in the 2020 NFL draft. He played three years at the University of Colorado Boulder prior to his selection, where he earned First-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2018 and Second-team honors in 2019.

The 6-foot-1, 227-pound didn’t quite stick on Jacksonville like many believed he would. Over his two pro campaigns, he has amassed 121 receptions for 1,219 yards and five touchdowns—with each of those five scores coming during his rookie season.

Shenault now joins the group of DJ Moore, Robbie Anderson, Rashard Higgins and Shi Smith—all of which, to one degree or another, are considered likely members of the 53-man roster. This acquisition, in turn, may ultimately impact the roster chances of Terrace Marshall Jr., Brandon Zylstra and/or Andre Roberts.
